Hey, there new customer. So chances are, someone in your organization, at your work, or your overbearing aunt that’s planning your family reunion has put you in charge of putting together an apparel order.

Deciding on Sizing

Deciding on sizes for a large group order can be stressful, but luckily we’re experts at it. Here’s our rule of thumb ratio for sizing:

Small: 1

Medium: 2

Large: 2

XL: 1

2X: .5

So for 100 tees you would order:

Small: 15

Medium: 30

Large: 30

X-Large: 15

2X-Large: 10

However, if your design is more complex than that, then you’re not out of luck! We can contract out your order for a small additional fee. We’ll do everything in our power to make sure that your dream designs get printed.
